The Georgetown Heritage is bringing back its famous canal boat after a decade long hiatus.
Funding for the new boat was made possible by a grant from the District of Columbia, and designed as a historic replica of the boats you would see in the 1880s, during the heyday of the canal’s commercial operation in Georgetown. The new boat comes with modern upgrades, including bathrooms.
According to Georgetown Heritage, public boat rides will begin in April 2022, and will run through October. The rides will be available from 10am to 4pm, Wednesday to Sunday.
The canal boat will serve as the cornerstone of our education and interpretation programs, connecting and engaging students, families and visitors from DC and beyond to the powerful stories of the people who helped build and sustain our nation’s capital, as well as the technology that drove the innovations of that time.
